Sentry Box Toys

Sentry Box Toys in Glasgow’s west end, it was really sad hearing this unique shop had closed this year so did a small tribute. ing thanks to friend Jordan’s awesome kids Annabella and Huxley helping out by recreating in their own way the original logo.

Mala Carne

I had an amazing meal at the vegetarian and vegan Mala Carne in Glasgow’s south side. The smoked carrot bagel and the cinnamon buns were some of the best I’ve ever tasted. It was cool to eventually get there as I’ve been meaning to visit for ages, really friendly people and vibe too.

Ramen Dayo!

A new watercolour diorama of Ramen Dayo’s ramen cart. It started off as a simple paper model but I ended up using wire with wooden struts to help build the roof as well as led lights to illuminate the lanterns and inside the roof.

I’d recommend the ramen of course too. Ramen Dayo have moved into new premises in Queen Street and have created an experience with wooden stalls and lanterns a plenty.

The Papercup crew. I finished this drawing from last week, had a great Japanese inspired salmon dish for lunch and top notch coffee as always.
